*Very Important Questions at the bottom of this post that we need you to answer….and who doesn’t like talking about fancy shoes?*
The other week Adam and I were invited to Jimmy Choo.
Firstly I need to tell you that their HQ reception had the most amazing book in it. A huge great big hard-backed number full of glossy models and campaigns all about yep, you guessed it – Choo’s. And I hadn’t realised just how prolific the brand was until that moment, every famous person worth their salt owns a pair (or five).
Now then. One of the reasons we were invited to check out the glamorous land of Choo is because they have designed a new concept to ensure every bride has the most amazing experience possible when deciding on the fancy footwear of choice for W-day – The Jimmy Choo “Bridal Room” at their Sloane street store.
A designated area filled with beautiful blooms for you and your best girls to try on Choo’s until your hearts content which to be honest, made absolutely perfect sense. Shoes to some folk are as important as “the dress”. Or in some cases even more important. So why shouldn’t the experience of purchasing such a coveted (and let’s face it) luxury item be an especially lovely one?
I guess that leaves me with sharing our favourite pairs (believe me it is so difficult to choose…)
If like me you are a bit of a short ar$e you may want to invest in a pair of sky rocket heels. And if you do these are our top picks: Above clockwise from top left: The Vita in nude patent with a metallic heel, the Sugar in nude satin with “hot fix”, the Crown in champagne glitter fabric and the Gloss in lace.
Sometimes I think if you’re going to do it then do it full throttle – with the sexiest and most statement shoes money can buy. Above clockwise from top left: The Lance in champagne glitter leather, the Viola in Anthracite, the Clue in silver snake, the Vamp in champagne glitter fabric.
Of course if you are after a little something altogether more demure and dare I say it traditional then the people at Choo cater for that requirement too. Above clockwise from top left: The India, the Clue, the Lizzy and the Icon all in ivory satin.
The Tall and Short of It
Another thing I learnt about Jimmy Choo is that you can often find very similar items available in a low heel to those that you may fall in love with that are eye-wateringly high – such as the Comet above in white mesh and the altogether much lower Isabel.
By the way just so you know these were my favourite – so delicate and pretty.
So then lovelies – Question time!
How important are shoes to you in general? and how important are they for W-day?
How many pairs do you own?
What are your favourite brands?
How much is the most you have ever spent on any one pair (go on ‘fess up!)
